The goatee appears as it grows naturally. The more natural the better! The goatee and moustache may be maintained but without any styling aids.* The moustache may not be curled. An area at least 4 cm wide (the width of a razor blade) between the temple and the goatee must be clean shaven.
No styling aids* permitted

Third: Piero Mastrorosa, Italy
America was shut out in this category in Norway, after having won six out of the seven top-three spots at the previous two WBMC’s. Germans have resurged here, with the two top spots going to Belle Moustache and the Pforzheimer Beard Friends. BTUSA took gold in this category in Alaska, after going one-two-three in 2007.
Look for BTUSA ringers Jonathan Patrick and Col. Dennis Dickerson (pictured below) to make a strong showing in Leinfelden-Echterdingen.
Note: The 2013 World Beard and Moustache Championships will be conducted in accordance with the official Rules and Regulations of the Association of German Beard Clubs. The description set forth above is an unofficial English translation.
